I hike, camp, paddle, and explore wild places. While I’m at it I teach and motivate others to enjoy and protect the outdoors safely and fully. As a Certified Wilderness First Responder, and steward of Leave no Trace Ethics I help others enjoy the wilderness safely, and protect it for the future. I write and create content to help others remember how important it is to get outdoors with your family and know how to survive if you need to. I am the Wild West Explorer.
